Default guitar

I've started to model my guitar. Here's what I've got so far, I'll post more as I progress. Any constructive criticism or ideas would be much appreciated. Cheers a million,

Mat.

Isn't the bit where the strings are attched to a bit further down the body?

Apart from that it's a pretty cool model. Should look good textured

I've done a little more, it should make a little more sense now as to why the bridge is where it is. Cheers for your thought so far, I'll check my measurements again regarding the neck and hole. I'm totally looking forward to texturing this one, must be patient though!! I'll keep you posted, thanks again,

Mat.

It is an Antoria Howard Roberts (big hollow body jazz type electric/acoustic guitar). I've just finished the neck and done the machine heads, only a few more bits to go, yay!

All I have left to do is attach the strings to the machine heads and I'm done (I think!). I rekon I'll get round to that tomorrow! any thoughts would be cool and taken on board. Thanks,
